Android Wear 2.0!
Today, we've released details on the first watches running a production build of Wear 2.0: the LG Watch Style and LG Watch Sport. You can expect the very first production Wear 2.0 users to start appearing this Friday, February 10th, with other watches getting their update to Wear 2.0 to follow. Now would be a good time to do some final testing and push your Wear 2.0 apps to production.

Look for more developer focused announcements in the coming days!
#AndroidWear 2.0 is bringing you new ways to use apps, message friends, work out, and get help from your Google Assistant. Learn more: https://goo.gl/ZYQmqU

Still no idea about this problem? The Action Drawer is a major new UI for AW2, and AFAICT is broken, and I get no reaction? Hello? :)
WearableActionDrawer: clarifications about the first action.

Hi,
I'm trying to use WearableActionDrawer with a menu that has only one action. I was expecting the first action to show on the "peek" element, but I don't see it, instead I only see a chevron icon.

The "documentation" [1] says this: By default, the action drawer shows the first action with a chevron symbol when there is more than one action

But that's not what I'm seeing.

The Material Design spec [2] goes even further: When the current view contains only 1 possible action, the drawer displays only that action, and the drawer can’t be expanded.

But that's not what I'm seeing either (I can definitely expand).

What am I missing?

Also, as a bonus question: why isn't there an official documentation other than [1] (you know, like a javadoc?) for this API?

Showing an extended notification on a device with a 'chin' => the "more actions" icon is behind the chin...
Is that a known bug? Cc +Ian Lake

I would love to see an app folder option implemented in a later revision of 2.0. The typical drag one app over another scenario, which when opened would overlay a second app "wheel" over the root directory apps. The original listing could perhaps fade out / blur / dim or completely be overridden, and each folder could have a little tag / label above listed apps

I wonder why the app launcher on watches with Android Wear 2.0 hasn't circular scrolling gesture (setCircularScrollingGestureEnabled) for round watches enabled?

I noticed this type of scrolling can be problematic when used on layouts that also use swipe to dismiss, but since the app launcher only gets dismissed by side button press, one would think circular scrolling would be kind of ideal here. At least with a a tiny fraction bezel with of the screen radius, such as 25%.

Maybe +Ian Lake knows something about this design decision?


I'm puzzled with this. How can I set notification color on AW 2.0?

NotificationCompat.Builder.setColor() doesn't work, neither WearableExtender.setBackground().

I don't know if I'm missing something. Gmail, Hangouts, etc uses colored notifications, so there has to be the way. Also, there is mention in docs about being careful with colors and AW1/AW2 theme change - but no example.

Just to be clear: setColor/setBackground works on AW1.

Does anyone know if notification groups are supported in the final Wear 2.0?

The last mention of them was in the release notes for DP4:
This preview release does not include support for notification groups.
...which sort of implied that the final release would include support for them. I haven't heard anything more, though.

Personally, I found groups quite handy for certain sorts of notifications. If they're not in the final 2.0 release (and they're unlikely to be added to soon), I should probably begin the work of implementing a workaround for their lack. It'd be good to know this.

Hi! Is there any way to obtain the "chin" size, from inside a Service?
I need to download some images, and provide the wanted dimensions (which depend on the chin size).

Thanks a lot.
